HONOLULU -- Kaimuki High School's dress code came under fire Tuesday
from a member of the Church of Satan. 
The dress code singles out clothing and accessories that promote

The head of Citizens for the Separation of State and Church said the
school's policy violates free speech provisions in the Constitution. 

KITV 4 News saw piercings, dyed hair and bare midriffs. However, the
school's written policy states the following are not allowed in
classrooms: gang-related clothing, or clothing promoting alcohol,
tobacco, profanity, or Satanism. 

"Just simply labeling it as Satanist is inappropriate. It singles out

general's office is reviewing the policy. 

As a result of Tuesday's complaint, the reference to Satanism in the
dress code policy will be taken out. 

It's already been deleted from the school's Web site. However, it's
unclear how many hard copies of the policy exist with the Satanism
reference and how those will be deleted.
